If you use this modification, please >> Mark As Installed, Nominate for MOTM, or Support Developer <<, thank you


What is this!?
vBISpy is an AJAX real-time feed of new posts/threads for your vBulletin 4.0 forum.

Please note that this is currently in Beta. The style is not perfect, but the mod should be fully functionial.


Current Version
2.0.4 - You can find the 3.6.x version, here.


Features flagged for future version(s):
  • looking for suggestions


Will this work on x.x.x ??
Unless otherwise stated, this will work on all 4.0.x versions. This will not work on 3.x.


Sounds cool. How do I install?
  1. Extract the zip, you should have the following directories/files:


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

  2. Upload: (in the below instructions 'yourforum' would be where you have vBulletin installed)
    • vaispy.php to /yourforum/vaispy.php
    • /clientscript/*.js to /yourforum/clientscript/*.js
    • /images/misc/*.gif to /yourforum/images/misc/*.gif


Upgrading
Unless noted otherwise, just upload and overwrite 'vaispy.php'.


Customization
Virtually all the code to customize the page is in the vaispy.php script; there are no plugins, no templates and no phrases. You do not need to do anything further; this should work right out of the box.

If you'd like to block certain usergroups from viewing vBISpy; or certain forums from being displayed - edit vaispy.php

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

In your browser, open the URL:

http://www.yourforum.com/forum/vaispy.php

You can see examples of this at:
  • Anyone wanting to list here as an example?


Note: Neither I nor MPDev claim ownership of this code except for the file vaispy.php - the rest of the files were using 'freely distributable' (although modified to suit vBISpy) sources. As such, you may use these files as you wish, but please do not remove the copyrights.

Hey mate. I have a suggestion

Turn this into a widget formed mod. That way we can install it on the CMS as well. This would probably involve configuring directory paths and copying the vbispy into the PHP Widget.

If you need help I could try testing and playing around with it. Let me know via pm.

P.S: Nice network of sites.


Edit:
On xml install I get this error:
XML Error: not well-formed (invalid token) at Line 340

This mod has no product xml, you just upload files and make template edits to include a link to vaispy.php

Is there any chance that we can have small avatar on "by" column?..
After we have avatar,I guess I can make it look like yahoo answers homepage with some basic html coding (recent-populer section)

regards

Installed, tagged, nominated.

Any possibility of making this a WIDGET for the front page? (CMS)

It would be excellent.

In any case, thanks for this!

I have hundreds of forums... and i would like this to only pull info from 15 or so forums.
Would i then need to put in the forum number of all of the hundreds of forums i dont want it to pull posts from?
Cuz that would not be fun.
Specially since i plan on using this on a number of different pages, broken down by forum section.

How can i run this code inside a template and not in its own page.
Like i want to be able to run it inside a forum or section... even if that means using the notices system.
When i put the code in there it doesnt work though.

Best thing to do is set up a Forum in the Admin CP and when creating the Forum, just add a URL re-direct so when a user clicks on the Forum it will go to the URL of iSpy.
Easy mate.

I am just curious - does this script/iSpy require much server-load?

I can't believe it took me so long to find this! Wow, what an awesome mod.

My only question is, how do I get it to look like a grid setup which divides the updates cleanly like here: http://www.bikeforums.net/vaispy.php
